iSuppli Estimates Manufacturing Cost of Palm Pre Is $138
The Pre is Palm’s make-or-break device that has received a tremendous amount of investment from shareholders. Palm even boosted its stock offering in order to raise $84 million to invest in to the Pre. Manufacturing research company iSuppli, who also found out that the cost of making the PS3 dropped last December is estimating that the cost to make the Pre is $138 per unit.
Regardless of the assumptions, we already expect the phone to cost less than an iPhone which is costing $174 per unit.@amitchowdhry or on Google+ at +AmitChowdhry
